From examiner.com – a new article in the journal Pediatrics is calling on health professionals to stop saying that breastfeeding is natural, arguing that doing so gives the impression that natural parenting practices are healthier. The authors have started a public campaign to end the positive use of the word natural, claiming that it is associated with such “problematic” practices as home birth, homeschooling and the rejection of GMO foods, and that natural parenting movements are interfering with vaccination efforts.
In the article, Unintended Consequences of Invoking the “Natural” in Breastfeeding Promotion, Jessica Martucci and Anne Barnhill, Medical Ethics and Health Policy researchers at Penn Medicine, wrote:
“Building on this critical work, we are concerned about breastfeeding promotion that praises breastfeeding as the “natural” way to feed infants. This messaging plays into a powerful perspective that “natural” approaches to health are better… Promoting breastfeeding as “natural” may be ethically problematic, and, even more troublingly, it may bolster this belief that “natural” approaches are presumptively healthier.”
The authors are especially concerned that promoting natural practices such as breastfeeding will harm vaccination rates, since many parents who follow natural parenting practices also delay or decline vaccinesfor their children. Thy also cite other examples of the “fallacy” that natural choices are intrinsically better, including the rejection of GMO foods, the preference for organic over conventionally grown foods and concerns over water fluoridation. …
It’s actually worse than this: the CDC wants to “delay” (i.e. stop) breastfeeding because it enhances immunity, interfering with vaccine-induced immune response.
(NaturalNews) (UPDATE: Registration is now open for The Truth About Cancer (FREE). The videos start streaming for free on April 12th. Click here to register now.) In case you didn’t notice, we are living in an age of extreme medical censorship. Over the last week or so, we’ve all watched in fascination as the entire mainstream media called for the outright censorship of a vaccine documentary they had never even seen. That documentary — “VAXXED” — was so dangerous to the medical establishment that orders went out to the media to attack it and destroy it.
Similarly, a book called “A Mind of Your Own,” authored by a holistic doctor named Dr. Kelly Brogan, was blackballed by the entire mainstream media after orders went out to crush the book. It recommends a holistic, nutrition-based approach to mental health while exposing the lies and science fraud behind antidepressants and SSRI drugs.
Now, the shocking docu-series known as The Truth About Cancer, is about to be re-launched to the public beginning April 12. And right on cue, the drug-pushing media science trolls will be either ignoring it or attacking it, depending on what orders they receive from Big Pharma.
Mind-blowing, lifesaving information that could collapse the for-profit cancer industry
This docu-series is so powerful that it threatens to collapse the for-profit cancer industry. That industry earns its revenues based on repeat business from cancer treatments that don’t prevent cancer or reverse cancer. Instead, today’s fraudulent cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation actually CAUSE more cancer!
The absolute last thing the cancer industry wants is for knowledge of cancer prevention strategies (and cancer cures) to spread among the public. Such knowledge threatens their very existence and takes away the profits they’ve been counting on from treating cancer in 1 out of 3 people for the foreseeable future…
